Suffer from costo chondritis. MY doctor won't prescribe anything other than paracetamol. My gran gave me melfen. Is it safe?

Ibuprofen: Melfen is ibuprofen. It can be a good choice for costrocondritis, if there is no concern for stomach irritation, kidney issues, or bleeding limiting its use. Usualy dose would be 600 to 800 mg 3 times a day (with food) for 5 to 7 days. I would still check with your doctor to make sure that there is not a reason that melfen was not suggested initially. ...Read more

Risky: Starting just prior to 1900, topical anesthesia was available so cataract surgery could be performed painlessly.

Is treatment different for c-shaped scoliosis vs. S-shaped? What is the difference, if any, in treatment for c-shaped and s-shaped scoliosis? .

Varies: It is a bit of a generalization, but usually when you talk about a c shaped curve, you are talking about a single curve.
